Read Frequently Asked Questions

Due to pressure from political influences, the need for increased tax revenues, and possibly due to concerns over illegal immigration, the U.S. Government has stepped up enforcement activities of various targeted industries, including the hotel and hospitality industry. The Wage and Hour Division (WHD) of the U.S. Department of Labor has the authority to conduct investigations in a particular industry or locality, especially when there are indications of widespread violations. The training program will focus on the importance of a wage and hour audit and discuss the framework for conducting an effective wage and hour audit.

Why Should You Attend:

Under the Obama administration, the Wage and Hour Division (WHD) of the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has become re-energized and is the most active it has been for many years. In light of such enhanced enforcement activity, it is even more important to identify and correct potential wage and hour issues and to otherwise prepare for a WHD investigation. This webinar will focus on how to conduct an effective internal wage and hour audit, plan for an actual WHD investigation, and otherwise minimize potential exposure under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

As the WHD conducts virtually its entire litigation discovery through record audits and onsite inspections, and the FLSA gives the DOL broad investigative authority, it is critical for employers to prepare for, and assert their rights and manage the flow of information during, investigations. Various state agencies have similar investigatory powers under state wage and hour laws. Preparation is now more important than ever before because of the current enforcement-heavy philosophy of the WHD and state agencies.
